Guest Access Captive Port for Disclaimer Only, No Auth

We currently have a very small basic wireless network setup and we are looking to extend access to our connectivity to guests.

What we would like to do is be able to configure a Guest VLAN on the wireless connection that would display a disclaimer on the terms of use prior to granting access to the network.

We are currently using a pair of AP1142N access points connected back into a Cisco 6509 w/ Sup 720. The access points are not lightweight access points as the small number of access points we are managing did not warrant the need for centralized configuration.  Is there a way to implement a captive portal without a wireless lan controller using just these devices?  We also have a few spare ASA5505/5510 laying around but I do not believe they would provide any additional services that would help this process.  Additionally, a RADIUS server is available to authenticate against, however, our "requirements" do not need any type of authentication with the captive portal, just simply a disclaimer with the terms of use. If there is a way to do it without additional devices that would require authentication, we would consider a guest/guest username/password combination to accomplish this.

In leiu of the above, we have an unused Cisco 2811 router lying around and found a used NM-AIR-WLC6 on Ebay that appears to be the most inexpensive wireless controller that I can find. Will this support a captive portal in the manner I am looking to achieve

Any assistance would be appreciated...

You can use a Nac Guest Server but that might be overkill. There are many 3rd party software that can be used for guest access. Some are free:
